Product Specification
Technical Specifications and Descriptions
for a Single Capstone® MicroTurbine™ (Enclosed and Recuperated)

Summary
This Product Specification describes the Capstone MicroTurbine power generating system
(hereafter referred to by Capstone as a MicroTurbine). The MicroTurbine provides on-site
electrical power for primary or standby applications, and for peak shaving, base loading,
and/or capacity additions. MicroTurbine(s) may generate power in parallel with an
electrical utility (Grid Connect mode), or isolated from the utility (Stand Alone mode). The
system consists of a turbine engine, solid-state power electronics, a fuel system, and an
indoor/outdoor-rated enclosure.
MicroTurbine systems are available in 30, 60, or 65 kW versions, known as C30, C60 or C65
models. The C60 and C65 have an option to include a top-mounted heat exchanger,
marketed by Capstone as the Integrated Combined Heat and Power package (ICHP). The
ICHP option includes an exhaust heat recovery unit and exhaust diverter to allow full or
partial recovery of exhaust energy. This allows the user to realize high total system efficiency
with respect to incoming fuel energy, while providing economical operation and operational
flexibility.
Major MicroTurbine components include a compressor, a recuperator (exhaust gas heat
exchanger), a combustor, a turbine, and a generator. The turbine engine is air-cooled and
supported on air-lubricated compliant foil bearings. The compressor impeller, turbine rotor,
and generator rotor are mounted on a single shaft, which comprises the only moving part in
the engine. Power electronics are solid-state, double conversion type, producing three-phase
alternating current output power from the high-frequency alternating current engine output.

Performance Derating
Performance is affected by ambient temperature and elevation. The performance ratings listed
are at full load power at ISO conditions. Performance derating occurs at ambient temperatures
and elevations above ISO conditions and is also affected by air inlet pressure, back pressure
and system parasitic loads (i.e. gas compressor, battery charging).
Typical derating curves for power output and efficiency based on ambient temperature are
shown in the curves on the following pages. These curves assume no parasitic losses and
zero inlet and exhaust back pressure.

Engine Cycling Life


Consult Capstone for specific guidance if application requires more than 10,000 onload
operations from idle to full power, or repeated cycling of more than 50% of engine power
range within five minute intervals.

Integral Heat Exchanger


The ICHP heat exchanger, in heat recovery mode, recovers the exhaust energy of the C60
MicroTurbine. Tables 10 thru 12 show the ICHP system heat recovery in full heat recovery
mode for water at various inlet water temperatures. The minimum heat recovery is 3 kWth(10
MBtu/hr) in full bypass mode.
